    i saw this on slashdot. the creators of the simpsons filmed a live-action version of their opening titles. here is the article at thesun.co.uk (who needs to hire a better spellchecker, Marg?) and if the video is still slashdotted, here is an alternate link.

    Pretty cool!

    I understand it was done in the UK, but with the computer work they did on it, the least they could have done was flip the frame so Marge and Maggie look like they're in an American car.

    mark, i love your new sig.

    amy: i bet you couldn't even see my obscene tattoo with a regular tv!

    about "marge" being on the other side of the car, even though it's shown in the UK, the simpsons takes place in the US, so it's not as accurate as they would like to believe. still really cool though.

    The weird part is that Homer's car is left-hand drive.

    good point. guess it kind of has to be, otherwise the driveway would have to be on the other side of the house for everyone to almost hit him.

    Sky TV is Rupert Murdoch's satellite channel and the 'home of the Simpsons' in the UK (we get the new episodes a few weeks after you guys).

    Curious choice of cars. Homer's Lada is about right (think Yugo and you've just about got it). However, Marge's Volvo (even an old one) is a bit up-market by Brit standards for Homer and Marge's demographic group.

    she must be forgetting about marge's right hand drive car, and homer's left hand drive car. how about a live action opening to the futurama straight-to-dvd movies we're getting! [​IMG]
